Radiance Technologies has joined forces with Northrop Grumman to compete for the US Air Force (USAF) National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s (NASIC) advanced technical exploitation program II (ATEP II) contract.

Having an estimated value of $960m, the ATEP II contract seeks to provide technical intelligence services to support the NASIC in geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) and non-nuclear measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT) tasking, collection, processing, exploitation and dissemination (TCPED) activities.

"The company holds more than 40 years of experience in overhead persistent infra-red (OPIR) data processing, which represents a critical aspect of NASIC’s mission."

Specific services include up to 24/7 intelligence operations, reachback advanced data exploitation support, GEOINT and MASINT research and development (R&D) for NASIC and mission partners across the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other intelligence communities.

Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems C4ISR networked systems vice-president Edward Bush said, "This teaming arrangement greatly advances the objective of ATEP II and the mission of NASIC by offering them cutting-edge technology, innovation and experience."

Radiance Technologies Dayton Operations assistant vice-president David Ross said, "Having Northrop Grumman on the ATEP II Team will help us provide an unparalleled level of support to the NASIC mission."

Northrop holds specific expertise in GEOINT and MASINT operations, which include planning and direction, collection, processing and exploitation, analysis and production, and dissemination activities.

In addition, the company holds more than 40 years of experience in overhead persistent infra-red (OPIR) data processing, which represents a critical aspect of NASIC’s mission.

A follow-on solicitation to the ATEP indefinite delivery/quantity (IDIQ)contract, the ATEP II contract includes a three-year base performance period and five one-year options, with first task orders scheduled to be awarded in August 2014.
